Unintentionally Funny: ‘Spider-Man: Web of Shadows’ TGS Trailer
The Tokyo Game Show that starts this weekend is one of the biggest videogame conventions in the world. The ComicMix staff is watching to see what comic game news is announced, but Activision’s Spider-Man: Web of Shadows trailer released at the show made me laugh. Though I don’t think that was the publisher’s intent.
A dejected Spider-Man walks across a rooftop, ignoring chaos around him, while sad music plays. As he approaches the edge, he breaks into a run to jump off. If I didn’t know better, I’d say hard luck Peter Parker got dumped by Mary Jane and finally decided to end it all. “No, Spidey! You have so much to live for!”
Watch the video for yourself and tell me I’m wrong.
